Peers and individuals with lived experience should be engaged in the design and delivery of health services, programming and policies to help to inform the work and increase access to services. This guide was created based on engagement with different peers and stakeholders to inform compensation guidelines for peers during short-term engagements. Short-term engagements may include attending meetings as an expert or advisor, and advising on a policy or program design. The payment standards help to inform organizations of fair and equitable payments for peers and people with lived experience during engagement.
